Last week, Representative Rosa DeLauro and Senator Cory Booker reintroduced The Safe Line Speeds in COVID-19 Act, which would prohibit slaughterhouses from operating at dangerously high speeds during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Safe Line Speeds in COVID-19 Act also directs the Government Accountability Office to conduct a review of the USDA’s response to COVID-19, including how well they protected animals and workers. This could have a positive impact on how the USDA handles crises in the future. Your action has the potential to facilitate lasting systemic change. The more cosponsors this bill has, the better its odds of success, so now is the time to speak up.
